Wednesday, December 14, 2022 from 3:00-4:30PM Eastern Time
View the event recording below. The slide deck is also available to view.
We will explore books from the Mathical Book Prize list — and beyond — in the company of authors, educators and early childhood experts. Mathical aims to inspire children of all backgrounds, ages and interests to develop a love and appreciation of the math in the world around them.
Come prepared for storytime — and enjoy being introduced to diverse activities and resources through demos, show and tell, and other “seed planting” strategies. You can return later at your leisure and explore more deeply with the expansive resource list we will provide.
Below are links to the resources and publications highlighted during this webinar.

About The Campaign for Grade-Level Reading
The Campaign is a collaborative effort by foundations, nonprofit partners, business leaders, government agencies, states and communities across the nation to ensure that more children in low-income families succeed in school and graduate prepared for college, a career, and active citizenship. The Campaign focuses on an important predictor of school success and high school graduation—grade-level reading by the end of third grade. Learn more: gradelevelreading.net / @readingby3rd
About the Mathical Book Prize
The Mathical Book Prize is an annual award for fiction and nonfiction books that inspire children of all ages to see math in the world around them. Mathical recognizes math-inspiring literature for kids ages 2-18. Prize-winning books are selected by a committee of teachers, librarians, mathematicians, and others. Each year’s selections join a growing list of stories ranging from picture books and graphic novels to chapter books and young adult literature.
